Premium Office Rent Tracker 2016

Globalisation and tech disruption intensify competition among cities

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We are in a new era of city competition, where cities are fighting to secure the world's most dynamic corporations, attract the best talent and pull in footloose capital. Increasingly, the commercial real estate sector is playing a pivotal role in this battle as the combined forces of globalisation and technological disruption reshape the world's urban hierarchy and urban form.

In this new tool, the Premium Office Rent Tracker, JLL provides a useful barometer of relative city attraction and explores the strains that cities face as their real estate markets try to accommodate growth. Also in this Tracker are answers to questions such as: Where are the most expensive offices spaces in the world? What are vacancy rates in the world's premium office markets? and how does the technology sector drive office demand?​​

Explore some of the key takeaways from our first Global Premium Office Rent Tracker report in this Slideshare presentation.​
